KG: So, did I dream it or did you once mention that you manage 167 lists?
P: Yea, sad ain't it. The slow lists are doing much better since the membership drive and the birth of the newsletter.
KG: How did get into this line of obsession? I hope you make time to eat and sleep occasionally.
P: The kids signed me up for the internet. Thought it was something I would have very little interest in, but I stumbled on fanfic while I was doing a search for Blake 7 and the rest is history. That was a little over a year ago.
KG: How long have you had the Wonderful World of Make Believe archive?P: If I'm not mistaken, I have been doing the archive for about a year. Had to learn it from HTML up, but it was worth it.
KG: How did you decide to start writing what was in your head? What was your motivation?
KG: Do you remember which challenge where?P: It was a Sentinel Challenge. A story involving rubber bands, ties and a couple other things. I came up with a little something called "Behind Locked Dooks" 
KG: Who is your favorite character in slash to write about? Read about? And why?
P: I've always been especially prone to read Sentinel, even when I hadn't seen the show, I was writing it. Got all my history from the mailing lists. Now I've seen the eps that have been shown on SciFi; don't know if seeing the show has improved my stories...highly doubt it, but then I prefer to write AUs.KG: I've read some Sentinel and critiques of it and even surfed up some photos of the Jim Ellison and Blair, just to see what the fuss was about. They're cute; I can dig it. I'd like to hear their voices someday (and the Chakotay and Paris as well) since I'm into voices.
- "Dooks" or "Doors" -- unclear if this is a typo in the original transcript
